Do MysQL Query will less re-read about the same table.

Dear all,

I read this: http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2014/02/25/mysql-profiler-a-simple-and-convenient-tool-for-profiling-sql-queries/

and I am not sure why this one:

SELECT DISTINCT p.maker_id
FROM products AS p
JOIN models m ON p.model_id = m.model_id
WHERE m.model_type = 'PC'
AND NOT EXISTS (
SELECT p2.maker_id
FROM products AS p2
JOIN models m2 ON p2.model_id = m2.model_id
WHERE m2.model_type = 'Laptop'
AND p2.maker_id = p.maker_id
);

Open in new window


can be converted to :

SELECT p.maker_id
FROM products AS p
JOIN models AS m ON p.model_id = m.model_id
WHERE m.model_type IN ('PC', 'Laptop')
GROUP BY p.maker_id
HAVING COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'PC' THEN 1 END) > 0
AND COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'Laptop' THEN 1 END) = 0;

Open in new window



with the same result?

what is the

HAVING COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'PC' THEN 1 END) > 0
AND COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'Laptop' THEN 1 END) = 0;

Open in new window


is about?

JOIN models m2 ON p2.model_id = m2.model_id
WHERE m2.model_type = 'Laptop'
AND p2.maker_id = p.maker_id
);

Meaning of this is - required distinct maker_ id where model type is only PC not Laptop

in new query

GROUP BY p.maker_id
HAVING COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'PC' THEN 1 END) > 0
AND COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'Laptop' THEN 1 END) = 0;

GROUP BY - use for distinct data

HAVING COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'PC' THEN 1 END) > 0  - use for make sure model type is PC


AND COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'Laptop' THEN 1 END) = 0; - use to make sure that it will not contain laptop as model type

The first query basically says find all records where the products contains 'PC' and where there isn't another record for the same manufacturer that makes a laptop.

In otherwords only find manufacutures of PC's

The second query obviously does the same thing but uses a slightly different technique.

This query groups all records that have the same manufacturer id together where the manufacture supplies either PC's or laptops and then sums (COUNT) the number of each device a particular manufacture makes.

So what could come out of the query - before the having is applied is

+----------+----------------------------+--------------------------------+
| MakerId  | Count(m.modelType  = 'PC') |  COUNT(m.modelType = 'Laptop') |
+----------+----------------------------+--------------------------------+
|  1       |           1                |            1                   |
|  2       |           1                |            0                   |
|  3       |           0                |            1                   |
+----------+----------------------------+--------------------------------+

The HAVING clause then exclude the records where PC is  0 or LAPTOP is > 0

Or to put it another way

Includes where PC is > 0
HAVING COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'PC' THEN 1 END) > 0

Open in new window

AND
where Laptop = 0
COUNT(CASE WHEN m.model_type = 'Laptop' THEN 1 END) = 0

Leaving you with
+----------+----------------------------+--------------------------------+
| MakerId  | Count(m.modelType  = 'PC') |  COUNT(m.modelType = 'Laptop') |
+----------+----------------------------+--------------------------------+
|  2       |           1                |            0                   |

basically is using the HAVING COUNT or count in this way can minimize the re read problem but is it just because of the having or becauase of the simple calculate in the where cause instead of "NOT EXISTS " ?

this will make the MySQL faster ?

Which one is the key part ?

It is a combination - grouping of records on like makerid and then eliminating the records you don't want based on the count values.

but grouping of records on like makerid don't speed up thing, right ?


so eliminating the records you don't want based on the count values is the key part ?

marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
then the inner join (to  replace the sub query) is not that efficent enought than that?

Usually the key thing should be that any thing in the where cause should be index to avoid table scan, this should provide much performance gain than this kind of group by, right?
